Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be not uncommon, though very rare in some areas (Lambert and Woodcock 1996).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction (del Hoyo et al. 2003).
